Today we have Linda Hubalek back for another week to tell us about her antique quilts, books, and other exciting adventures in her life.
Last week I showed you my cat, Gray Cat, who is almost always on my bed, plus quilts made by my great grandmother, Kizzie Pieratt.
Currently I’m working on my next book about Kizzie, titled The Kansas Quilter, which I plan to have published for the unveiling of my quilt show on Friday, May 3rd.
Here’s a few quilts made by my grandmother, Irene Pieratt Akers that will be on show, besides those made by my great grandmother.
Kizzie had eight children and a farm to run, so her life was different than her daughter’s. Irene had three children and was a housewife with more time on her hands. Irene’s quilts are more stylish with the patterns of the times (1920-1940s) and had much more detailed work.
Pictured with this post are Irene’s Lone Star quilt, the Ozark Star quilt, and my favorite—the pink Fan quilt.
This quilt show will be at the Millfest Festival in Lindsborg, Kansas, from May 3-5, 2013. School groups from around the area come in on Friday to have some hands-on learning about pioneer history.
Then that Friday afternoon, MaryJane’s Sisterhood “Farmgirls on the Loose” groups are coming in with their vintage campers (they call it “glamping”) to enjoy the weekend festival and a special program on these antique quilts and the debut of my book.
If you’d like to enjoy a special weekend in May (or any other time), please visit Lindsborg, known as Little Sweden USA. If you can’t join us, please enjoy reading about the special women on the Kansas prairie that had quilts on their bed, (with or without a cat).

Many thanks from the Kansas prairie! Linda Hubalek
Doesn't that sound fun? If you're in the area, you'll have to go glamping with Linda! I'm so excited about that event. Thanks again Linda for coming on the blog.
